As a seven-year-old boy, George Durrant had several meaningful experiences when he was preparing for baptism. Each of these experiences helped him learn a different gospel principle that strengthened his testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
Now as a grandfather, he has written and illustrated this delightful book about that year in his life. He says, “The stories in this book ring true, because they are true. They depict the tender feelings of a less-than-perfect seven-year-old who is growing emotionally in ways that will help him or her be prepared to be baptized at the age of eight.”
Your seven-year-old can read these stories alone, or you can read the book aloud to your young one and discuss ideas that arise. This book will capture the interest and touch the heart of your beloved seven-year-old child who is preparing for baptism.

My kids love it.

I've been reading this book with my 7-year old who will be baptized at the end of this year. The stories are very engaging and are written at a kid level. My son has been amused at how much mischief the author gets into on his way to discovering the principles of the gospel. I like how the author always concludes the short chapters with clear consequences for his actions and what he learned from each experience. My 7-year old and his 5-year old brother both asked me to read this book to them so often that we finished it in a week's worth of bedtime stories.
